How to Apple Pear Crisp in the Slow Cooker
Start by gathering your ingredients. For this easy slow cooker recipe you will need 3 apples, 3 pears, sugar, cinnamon, oats, flour, sugar, and butter. You will also need a bit of non-stick spray for prepping the slow cooker.
Next, core and chop the apples and pears. You can leave the skin on the fruit or remove it. That is totally up to you.
Mix together your cinnamon and sugar to make – you guessed it – cinnamon sugar.
Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, and chilled butter to create the topping.
Now it is time to add everything to the slow cooker in the following order:

Keepin' it Crispy
Now comes a little trick to keep the crisp from becoming soggy while cooking in the slow cooker.
The trick to keeping this apple pear crisp crispy is… paper towels.
Yes, you read that right.
Simply draping paper towels over the top of the slow cooker before placing the lid on will help to absorb moisture. The result is a nice and crispy topping.
Cook for 2 hours on low and then cool briefly before serving.
And while this apple and pear crisp is delicious when enjoyed on its own, top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or some whipped cream for a real treat. Or better yet, top it with a bit of both!
The combo of the warm crisp with the cold and creamy vanilla ice cream is just heavenly.
